Tights on Bikes

Cold weather plus cute clothes often means shivering when it comes to biking in San Francisco. But with the help of funky tights, socks, and legwarmers, you can cycle in style (not to mention wear a mini skirt). All captions and photos by Kristin Tieche of Velo Vogue.

So fishnets have become a bit of an SF icon, but honestly, can you recommend a more stylish and practical covering for your legs?

We caught the tail end of this woman pulling her thigh-high tan stockings all the way up to the hem of her grey shorts before she blasted off onto the Embarcadero.

Why settle on boring black or dull grey when you can go wild with stripes of all colors? Dress up that little black dress with some pizazz!

To cycle sexy, try some short shorts. But to stay warm in SF, try some matching arm-warmers and thigh-high legwarmers.

Clearly anything goes in SF, but this snazzy cyclist in gold lamé went all out infor this year's Bicycle Music Festival.

A tell-tale sign that the 80s are back? When you see legwarmers on every street corner.

Tights: a stylish alternative to lycra. Why not wear them with boots and mini-skirt and avoid catching a pantleg in your chain?
